  • Indians designate Scott Barnes for assignment
    Indians designated LHP Scott Barnes for assignment.

    Advice: The team acquired Charles Brewer from the Diamondbacks for cash considerations on Saturday. The designation of Barnes was their way of making room on the roster. Barnes pitched 8+ innings with the Indians last season and allowed seven runs over that stretch. Rotoworld.com

  • Indians acquire RHP Brewer from Diamondbacks
    Indians acquired RHP Charles Brewer from the Indians for cash considerations.

    Advice: The Diamondbacks had designated Brewer for assignment on Thursday. The right-hander had a cup of coffee with the club in 2013, but he spent all of this past season in the minors. The 26-year-old will be pitching depth for the Indians. Rotoworld.com

  • Report: Astros interested in David Robertson
    Ken Davidoff of the New York Post reports the Astros have contacted the agent for David Robertson to express their interest in the free agent closer.

    Advice: MLB.com's Brian McTaggart previously reported the Astros were aggressively seeking a top closer, so it makes sense that they would be interested in Robertson. The 29-year-old is said to be looking for a contract along the lines of what Jonathan Papelbon got from the Phillies, so if the Astros are willing to pony up the two could be a match. A return to the Yankees is also a strong possibility, and as many as a half-dozen teams have reached out to express their interest in the right-hander. Rotoworld.com

  • D'backs deal Bolsinger to Dodgers for cash
    Dodgers acquired RHP Mike Bolsinger from the Diamondbacks for cash considerations.

    Advice: The D'backs had previously designated Bolsinger for assignment. In Bolsinger, the Dodgers are getting a 26-year-old right-hander who had a 5.50 ERA in 52 1/3 innings this past season. Bolsinger may start or pitch in relief for the Dodgers. Rotoworld.com

  • Cisnero signs minor league contract with Reds
    Reds signed RHP Jose Cisnero to a minor league contract.

    Advice: Cisnero was outrighted off the Astros' 40-man roster earlier this month. Cisnero, 25, had Tommy John surgery in May, so he won't be ready by the time spring rolls around. Rotoworld.com

  • Rockies sign Jose Ortega to minor league deal
    Rockies signed RHP Jose Ortega to a minor league contract.

    Advice: The 26-year-old hurler was bombed in his only appearance with the Tigers during the 2014 season, but posted a somewhat respectable 3.57 ERA, 1.48 WHIP and 48/36 K/BB ratio over 58 frames at Triple-A Toledo. He'll provide bullpen depth in the minors for the Rockies. Rotoworld.com

  • Rockies sign Justin Miller to minors contract
    Rockies signed RHP Justin Miller to a minor league contract.

    Advice: The 27-year-old hurler cracked the big leagues for the first time in 2014, posting a 5.11 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 5/2 K/BB ratio over 12 1/3 innings with the Tigers. He'll function as organizational bullpen depth in Colorado. Rotoworld.com

  • Rockies sign Brett Marshall to minors deal
    Rockies signed RHP Brett Marshall to a minor league contract.

    Advice: The 24-year-old right-hander was abysmal at Triple-A Louisville during the 2014 season, posting a 1-10 record, 6.53 ERA, 1.82 WHIP and 59/51 K/BB ratio over 70 1/3 innings. He's nothing more than organizational depth at this point. Rotoworld.com

  • Rockies sign John Lannan to minors contract
    Rockies signed LHP John Lannan to a minor league contract.

    Advice: The 30-year-old southpaw posted a 6.75 ERA over 56 innings of work at Triple-A Las Vegas in 2014. Given the Rockies struggles both in the rotation and the bullpen, it would be surprising to see him not get a shot at some point during the 2015 season. Rotoworld.com

  • Phillies sign Paul Clemens to minors contract
    Phillies signed RHP Paul Clemens to a minor league contract.

    Advice: The 26-year-old right-hander appeared in 13 games out of the Astros bullpen in 2014, registering a 5.84 ERA, 1.66 WHIP and 16/13 K/BB ratio over 24 2/3 innings. With his ability to start and pitch in relief, he'll provide valuable organizational depth for the Phillies. Rotoworld.com

  • Diamondbacks ink Caleb Clay to minors pact
    Diamondbacks signed RHP Caleb Clay to a minor league contract.

    Advice: The 26-year-old right-hander joined the Angels organization midway through the 2014 season after pitching the first half of the year in the Korean Baseball Organization. He posted a 5.09 ERA, 1.37 WHIP and 45/17 K/BB ratio over 76 frames at Triple-A Salt Lake. He'll function as organizational rotation depth for the D'Backs. Rotoworld.com

  • White Sox sign Joe Savery to minors contract
    White Sox signed LHP Joe Savery to a minor league contract.

    Advice: The deal should include an invitation to spring training as well. The 29-year-old southpaw appeared in just three games with the Athletics in 2014, hurling four scoreless innings. He was terrific at Triple-A Sacramento, compiling a 2.84 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 45/17 K/BB ratio over 44 1/3 innings. He'll have a strong chance of cracking the White Sox bullpen on Opening Day.

  • Braves release southpaw Jonny Venters
    Braves released LHP Jonny Venters.

    Advice: The 29-year-old hurler is expected to miss the entire 2015 season as he continues to recover from a third Tommy John surgery. Once healthy, he should be able to find an opportunity elsewhere on a minor league pact. Rotoworld.com

  • Yu Darvish's MRI pushed back to next week
    A scheduled MRI on Yu Darvish's right elbow has been pushed back to next week.

    Advice: It appears to merely just be a scheduling conflict, as the Rangers still expect the MRI to come back clean. Darvish's season ended early due to elbow inflammation, but he's expected to be cleared to offseason work next week assuming the MRI reveals no issues. Rotoworld.com

  • Dodgers get Peralta from TB in 4-player deal
    Dodgers acquired RHP Joel Peralta and LHP Adam Liberatore from the Rays in exchange for RHPs Jose Dominguez and Greg Harris.

    Advice: The Rays exercised Peralta's $2.5 million option for 2015 earlier this month (he has $2.5 million club options for 2016 and 2017, as well) but have now decided to deal him for a bit of payroll space. The 38-year-old put up a 3.58 ERA and 293/84 K/BB ratio over 269 1/3 frames the last four years for the Rays and will work in a setup role for the Dodgers. Rotoworld.com

  • Diamondbacks designate Brewer for assignment
    Diamondbacks designated RHP Charles Brewer for assignment.

    Advice: Brewer had a brief stay in the majors with Arizona in 2014. He pitched in four games and allowed two runs over six innings. He'll try to latch on as bullpen depth elsewhere. Rotoworld.com

  • Diamondbacks DFA Bolsinger
    Diamondbacks designated RHP Mike Bolsinger for assignment.

    Advice: In 52+ innings at the major league level in 2014, Bolsinger put up an ugly 5.50 ERA. He allowed 66 hits and struck out 48 in that span. Rotoworld.com

  • Braves designate LHP Venters for assignment
    Braves designated LHP Jonny Venters for assignment.

    Advice: Two Tommy John surgeries have kept Venters from pitching in the majors since 2012. The southpaw is expected to miss the 2015 season as well, and the Braves decided their 40-man roster spot could be better used. Rotoworld.com

  • Re-signing Robertson a top priority for Yanks
    Bill Madden of the New York Daily News says re-signing David Robertson is Yankees general manager Brian Cashman's "absolute top priority."

    Advice: The Yankees extended Robertson a $15.3 million qualifying offer, and it was previously reported that the two sides met on Tuesday. That qualifying offer and the fact that Robertson is said to be looking for "Papelbon money" may help facilitate a return to the Yanks. At least a half-dozen clubs have expressed interest in the 29-year-old, according to Madden's NYDN cohort Mark Feinsand. Rotoworld.com
